Chart Bundle with B&G Zeus2

This question is probably for the US-based guys (and gals). I am getting ready to buy a B&G Zeus2 chartplotter. There are two models/choices as differentiated by the chart package included:

1) "Insight" chart
2) C-Map Max-N BDS Americas

The Insight bundle is about $200 cheaper. I know I need to buy C-Map Explorer Bahamas charts which are supposed to be best for Bahamas. What I am wondering is which of the two base choices (above) are best. I can find info on the BDS Americas. What I cannot identify is whether the Insight is Insight Pro, Insight East HD or Insight West HD - or a choice.

If anyone has the Insight version, could you look it up at startup or whatever? Too see what version.

Also, if you have either - especially in Florida or Gulf Coast - do you find them ok for use? Enough detail? Normally I would just buy the HD charts for the region. More detail.

Re: Chart Bundle with B&G Zeus2

Sailjumani, I am going with the Navionics Platinum + for the west coast. I do have a buddy in Boca that goes to the Bahamas very frequently, and will ask him what he uses and the accuracy.

I will send you a PM, as we are both about to install the same system.
